About Dancing

We teach virtually every social partner dance there is. Whether you are looking to learn basic social dancing for your next event, make a statement at your local club or go for the trophy at your next ballroom competition, our instructors are prepared to help you achieve your goals!

We follow a curriculum endorsed by experts in the ballroom industry, including Dance Vision International Dance Association (DVIDA) and National Dance Council of America (NDCA) and the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD).

Our teachers train daily in both the American and International styles of competitive ballroom dancing, along with the latest social dance styles, and are given frequent certification testing to ensure they have the most up to date knowledge of patterns, techniques and competitive requirements.

Benefits of Dancing

Dancing is a unique way to stay fit. It has many benefits for people of all ages, shapes, and sizes. You will be having so much fun while dancing, you won’t be thinking about all the mental and physical benefits that it can have for you.


  • Weight management

    Dance is a relatively low impact way to raise your heart rate, this allows you to burn more calories.


  • Improvement in muscle tone and strength

    Simple, you are getting a little bit of a workout in, so to many newcomers, you will be using muscles that you may not have known were there before!


  • Better coordination, agility, and flexibility

    Dance can improve your balance and footwork, assist you in coordination since you will be making some quick moves, and will stretch your muscles and joints.

    You will have to remember certain steps to dances and their timing.


  • Greater self-confidence and self- esteem

    Imagine how confident you would feel, going out with friends after a few lessons and really showing them, you know what you’re doing on the dance floor! You will be able to relax and enjoy yourself instead of being concerned with how you are dancing.


  • Better social skills

    We know, it can be awkward to get out on the dance floor. Most people who are dancing are first-timers! It’s a fun way to meet new people and experience an active form of being social. Dance is an inclusive activity!

    Stress can be a huge factor in why our bodies become ill or run down. Dance allows you to loosen up mentally and physically so that you can release that stress from your body!
